ariat ankle boots

I was asked to wear & share a pair of Ariat boots, and though the boots were gifted to me by Ariat, my thoughts on wearing them are purely my own.

Here in Miami, we get warm weather year round. It’s basically a blessing and a curse, because sometimes you (I) want to wear the cute winter clothes and shoes that sit idle in your (my) closet. This weekend, the temperature dipped to like.. the mid 70s, meaning it wasn’t completely ridiculous to wear ankle boots. Still too warm for jeans, but hey, I’ll take what I can get. These Ariat ankle boots are both comfortable and stylish, and thanks to the elastic panels rather than complicated zippers, they are easy to pull on and off. This is obviously important for me, because guess what I do as soon as I get home? Take off my shoes! I also love the detailed stitching and the feel–there is definitely no mistaking, these boots are high quality and built to last. Not familiar with Ariat? Since 1993, Ariat has designed technically advanced footwear for top equestrian athletes, setting the standard for performance and innovation worldwide. That means that these boots are not only fashion forward, but they are practical, too. Ankle boots like these are a definite wardrobe staple, especially because they can be dressed up or down. A great, well-made pair of boots (ankle or otherwise) will also have a long-standing place in your wardrobe. Quality definitely overrides quantity when it comes to your footwear, and boots are certainly no exception. They can be casual for daytime, or you can wear them to dinner in the evening. Some pairs can even be work shoes! Bonus: they go well with everything from sundresses to skinny jeans, and everything in between.

    Love it all. The side view is nice. Good heel length, and I, too, hate zippers!

    As a former equestrian, I know the value of a great pair of Ariats! Not only do they hold up, but they are so comfy and functional. I really need to add a pair to my shoe collection for those barn-free days…
